It is truly a claustrophobic's nightmare. I couldn't have handled it and am glad I served on nice, big surface ships in my Navy life. I was ready to leave the Drum about a minute after I boarded. Those guys who served on the old diesel boats were a rare breed. Even a nuclear submarine, which are 3 to 4 times the size of the Drum are too small for me.

Did you enjoy the Elation cruise? We had a fun time last year.
